The diagnosis of growing pains is more often than not a diagnosis given when the physician can not find the cause of the pain.
It is not uncommon for children to suffer from muscle and joint problems.
Studies have shown that both back pain and headaches are more common in children than previously thought.
It is therefore important to have your child checked by somebody who is qualified to treat these problems and also takes the time to do an appropriate examination.
Chiropractic treatment provides a safe and effective option for children and they usually respond quickly to treatment.
We regularly treat children in our clinics. Most the children are children of parents that we have alredy treated, but we often see children of parents that have been recommended to the clinic by friends.
It is only natural to have some reservations to a treatment you haven't experienced before, we recognise that. We therefore set aside time for you to ask questions about the examination, treatment and the diagnosis and treatment plan before we start.
If you have any doubt about the diagnosis of your child's symptoms, especially if they are not resolving, please contact us.
